Default First Step in HERMS Conversion...Thanks Yuri and all others

I just took the first step in upgrading to a HERMS System

I added a sight glass/Temp Prob port, electric heating element, and Heat exchanger coil to my HLT. Next comes digital Temp Controllers. Sorry for the poor Picture quality

Here I am just recirculating through the Coil back into the HTL to test for leaks…None yet



This is the Sight glass. The “T” on the end will be where the temp probe goes.



The is the Coil that is attached to the Cooler lid.

Looks nice, are you using QDs on this build?
